Cornwall ON – It was interesting watching Councilor Bernadette Clement’s attempt to bring back the Gymnasium project be discussed around the council table as it essentially became a gender issue; especially in the recorded vote.
It’s been a roller coaster watching the odd operatic efforts on both sides of the decision duke it out from the wording of amendments; to ramifications; outbursts, emotions, and even going to Robert’s Rules of Order which I doubt many around the table have ever read.
In the end it came down to Money. Was this council willing to spend a large chunk of tax payer money on a Gymnasium for Cornwall and at the end of the day Mark MacDonald cast what looked like the deciding vote and shooting down the determined Ms Clement’s efforts.
What do you think Cornwall? Are you happy to not be spending on the gym or do you think it was short sighted? You can post your comments below.
We’ll be releasing video of the council meeting on our video channel too as time has not allowed it to be crunched in time for this print date.
